Stories Left in Stone

Trails and Traces in Cáceres, Spain

Stories Left in Stone: Trails and Traces in Cáceres, Spain is an in-depth journey into the lives, histories, and art of those who live behind and among the stones in Cáceres and the region of Extremadura. Troy Nahumko is a Canadian-born travel writer who has lived with his family in the Old Town of the city of Cáceres, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for over a decade. While the city is his home, seeing the protected prehistoric artwork in the city's Cave of Maltravieso sparks a profound curiosity in Nahumko about the extensive past and current lives of his neighbours. Amid the dazzle of cobbled medieval streets, 12th century Moorish walls, fortified palaces, and 60,000-year-old handprints, how do locals characterize their city and leave their own marks? Combining personal narrative and interviews with locals, expats, travel guides, and experts, Nahumko goes behind the stones to uncover fascinating sociological, archaeological, and historical details, providing a deep and empathetic look at the region and its people. Filled with day hikes and alfresco lunches, warm personalities and local routines, Stories Left in Stone immerses the reader in Cáceres's history, food, art, and conversation.
